Step aside Jim Kelly! The greatest Quarterback in Bills history is Doug Fluite. You ask....Doug Flutie? Why?

Doug not have the advantage of playing with a talent stacked team. He had a poor offensive line in front of him.The head coach as well as his staff were inept, and he was able to be a winning quarterback! a 21-9 record!

Jim Kelly was as slow as a turtle, Doug ran like a gazelle. As far as leadership is concerned Doug out-shined Jim. Doug was able to make chicken salad out of "chicken S***" Jim Kelly was carried by players like Thurman Thomas, Kenny Davis, Andre Reed & his strong Offensive Line. He could not scramble, he forced to many passes and choked when the big game arrived.

Doug was not given a chance to play for a Superbowl with Buffalo because Ralph Wilson pulled him in favor of Rob Johnson for the "Music city Miracle" game. We all know that if Doug had played, the game would have been different. We would have one the Super Bowl.

Did Jim Kelly have his own cereal? Did Jim Kelly save the franchise? Doug Flutie saved the franchise! He helped increase ticket sales as well as box sales.
